"WE SHALL HAVE RAIN AGAIN," BUT 

MAY DAY FESTIVITIES GO ON 

JUST THE SAME. 



Uniqueness was a particular characteristic of 
1916's May Day. In the first place, it was the 
privilege of this year's Seniors, at 5.30 on Saturday 
morning, to introduce Tower Court to the tradi- 
tional ceremonies of May Day morning. Doubtless 
that dignified edifice was quite as unable to recog- 
nize its Senior occupants and their classmates 
when they appeared in ragged and bedraggled garb, 
with mops, brooms and buckets in hand, to scrub 
its walls and steps, as were the Freshmen when 
they arrived on the scene a little after 6 to sing their 
May Day song and present their flowers. 

When "Becky" Meaker had accepted their 
huge wreath of red roses with a speech appropriate- 
ly accompanied by flourishes of a scrubbing brush, 
and the rest of the scrub women had given a final 
swipe to the steps, the court was cleared, even of 
'16's goat which '17 "had" in the most literal 
sense of the word that morning for the Seniors' 
presentation of "Cinderella, a Greek tragedy in Three 
Acts." Here the three lower classes witnessed some 
clever take-offs of themselves. They were intro- 
duced to a tragic chorus of Freshmen, listened to the 
three haughty sisters of the fairy tale who strangely 
resembled "Skiz" Ladd, "Potter," and "Dot" 
Spellissey, discuss '17's election difficulties and saw 
Cinderella, "who was Timmie, too," captured by 
1919, but rescued in a clothes-basket chariot by 
her fairy-godmother, who gives her permission to 
stay out until 9.45 P.M. In Act II, Timmie in the 
excitement of a Forum, forgets this condition and 
fleeing as a 9.45 bell rings, loses her shoe. Finally, 
"Becky" Meaker, the Prince who had been pre- 
siding at the Forum, comes in search of the shoe's 
owner. The haughty Juniors, addicted to the use 
of ground grippers, cannot wear it, and the tragedy, 
strange to say, ends happily for "Timmie" and 
" Becky," who are pelted with lemons by the jealous 
Juniors. In the middle of the third act, the rain, 
which had threatened all morning, commenced, 
but the actors played bravely on to the end and the 
mock tragedy with its clever hits and local color 
was received with undampened ardor. 

The rain was the cause of the second unique 
feature of May Day — the omission of the hoop 
rolling and the formation of the numerals. 1919 
breakfasted under umbrellas on the green and then 
sought shelter at Tower Court where many studetits 



and their guests were consoling themselves by 
dancing. 

Before noon the sun had appeared and festivities 
commenced again. About 1 o'clock another un- 
expected event happened when 1918, at last suc- 
cessful in "putting one over on the Freshmen,", 
paraded the village, their whistles loudly acclaim- 
ing their arrival, with the costume which Alice 
Clough was to have worn as May Queen, borne 
aloft at the head of their column. At 2.30 on the 
green occurred one of the cleverest stunts of the 
day, when a baseball game, minus balls and bats, was 
played by the Bugs of Nutville vs. the Nuts of Bug- 
ville. Mock horse races were another humorous 
spectacle. 

The traditional May Day festivities this year 
very naturally adapted themselves as a part of the 
Shakespearean celebration. Not only were there 
many Elizabethan lords, ladies and youths among 
the little modern children playing at London 
Bridge or dancing to the music of the hurdy-gurdy, 
but Alice Clough herself, Queen of the May, ap- 
peared as a peasant maiden of Shakespeare's day, 
escorted by peasant boys and girls, and was crowned 
by Rebecca Meaker, the King of the May, as a 
page of the Lord of Tower Court. As the Queen 
and King, showered with brilliant confetti, led the 
long grand march around the green, judges chose 
those most effectively costumed for the May Pole 
dances. 

Never had the green been gayer than it appeared 
on Saturday- afternoon with its dancing, its games, 
its ice-cream booth, its hurdy-gurdy, its May 
Poles and its costumes of rainbow colors. 1917 s 
lemon tree, which under '16's tender care had blos- 
somed forth with the most gorgeous of red roses, 
added a particularly festive, vet historic touch to 
the scene. 

In the evening came step singing. 1918's crew 
song was received with great enthusiasm, as it well 
deserved to be, and then the day was ended with 
dancing at three of the society houses, Agora, 
Tan Zeta Epsilon and Zeta Alpha. 

The postponed morning festivities took place 
Monday morning, when the Seniors rolled their 
hoops down the hill as usual, forming in line while the 
other classes marched between their ranks into 
chapel. The numerals were formed, though some 
distress was caused by the appearance of a large 
sign at the top of the hill announcing that it was 
"Only sweet sixteen, but on the downward slope." 
Then the Freshmen presented red roses to the 
Seniors as they walked single file across a little 
bridge on Longfellow Pond, and May Day was over. 



ORCHESTRA CONCERT. 



On Friday evening, May 5, the Wellesley College 
Symphony Orchestra, which is now in its" tenth 
season, had its annual concert in Billings Hall 
before a large audience. Mr. Albert T. Foster of 
the Department of Music conducted the orchestra, 
which is made up of both faculty and student 
members. The orchestra was assisted by Miss 
Irma E. Clarke, Mr. Albert M. Kanrick, Mr. Frank 
Porter, Mr. C. C. Samuels, Mr. S. Burns, Mr. 
P. C. Fischer, Mr. W. A. dishing and Mr. A. 
Gilcher. 

Miss Margaret Dickey Griffin, 1915, played one 
of her own compositions, "The Vision of Sir Laun- 
fal." The College choir sang twice (luring the eve- 
ning. The program was as follows: 

I. Symphony, No. 1 in E flat Haydn 

Finale: Allegro con spirito. 



II. Vision of Sir Launfal, Margaret Dickej Griffin, 

'15- 
Choir with pianoforte accompaniment. 

III. Capriccio Brilliant, Op. 22 Mendelssohn 

For pianoforte with orchestral accompainment. 

Miss Eleanor Tyler, 1916, soloist. 

IV. Fn Badinant d' Ambrosio 

Orientale Cui 

March Coronation Meyerbeer 

V. Rene the king (final chorus). . . .Henry Smart 

Choir and Orchestra. 
The concert was in many respects the best one 
that the orchestra has ever given. 



SONG COMPETITION. 



The student body came out en masse, Tuesday 
evening, May 9, for Competition singing on the 
chapel steps. 191 7 opened the competition, fol- 
lowed by 1918, 1919, and 1916. The songs used 
this year were "Alma Mater," "The Sign of the 
Fair," an extremely clever Wellesley song, which 
we are happy to have revived, and the lour original 
class songs. 

The judge was Professor II. I). Sleeper of Smith 
College, who teased us a little by telling jokes and 
talking to us before announcing the winners. I he 
prizes, which, this year, were donated by Mrs. 
Edwin Farnham Greene, were awarded from the 
steps. The Junior and Senior songs were both 
thought clever enough to share the song prize, 
which delighted everyone. 1916 was given the 
prize for singing, because, Professor Sleeper said, 
of their enunciation, precision, excellent tone 
quality, and part singing. 

A great deal of credit is due to the four song 
leaders, Hazel Watts, 1916, Elizabeth P. Hill, 
1917, Bess Whitmarsh, 1918, and Elizabeth King, 
1919. The number of song practises had been 
limited this year, and as a result the work has been 
less tedious and every bit as satisfactory. 1916's 
song, "Wellesley Conversation," was written by 
Angeline Loveland, Helen Gehris, Hazel Watts and 
Eleanor Tyler. 19 17's song, "Wellesley Bells." was 
written by Martha Parsons, Buena Avers, Anna 
Mantz and Dorothy Coker. 



DENISON HOUSE PLAYS. 



Under the direction of the College Settlements 
Association, some of the young people connected 
with the Denison Settlement House, presented three 
short plays at the Barn, last Friday evening. 

The plays were coached by F. Lyman Clark, 
and the scenery managed by Martha Jane Judson> 
1918. The program was as follows: 

"The Flower of Yedda," a one-act play laid in 
Japan, was very creditably acted by lour ot the 
young people who have performed before at Den- 
ison House. The second number, a dance pan- 
tomime, was done with great skill and control by 
the young dancers. The figures were extremely 
complicated, but they were executed with a grace 
and spontaneity which was very unusual, and which 
was greatly appreciated by the Barn audience. 
The third number, a translation of "Quingove," 
was given with a well-acted and powerful interpre- 
tation of the character of the rebel poet and song- 
ster. Louis XI, the mooch and suspicious king ol 
France, was also excellently acted.

WHERE SELFISHNESS IS A VIRTUE. 



The plans for the Student Alumnae Building have 
been laid before the undergraduate body at an 
open forum. There are two kinds of interest which 
may be excited at the prospect of raising a new 
fund — the enthusiasm of a public-spirited, com- 
munity-at-large person, and the personal interest 
of one who, for selfish reasons, would like to see such 
a building in Wellesley. Whichever kind of inter- 
est is aroused in you, please do not let it flag on ac- 
count of its being either kind. In fact, a personal- 
ly interested person is of just as much value in rais- 
ing the money as a public minded one. 1916, just 
about to become alumnae, you certainly want a 
beautiful building to come back to, when you re- 
visit Wellesley. 1917 hasn't the proximity of 
the metamorphosis about to happen to 19 16 to 
give any particular color to the "Wellesley dream," 
nor has it anything but a remote possibility of the 
building's materializing within its college lifetime, 
to arouse much selfish enthusiasm, so you will have 
to be the ideal interested-in-the-good-of-the-College 
class, and work your very hardest to show how un- 
selfish you can be. Virtue will be its own reward, 
for you certainly will enjoy soon the advantages of 
the building. 1918 and 1919, it is for you, however, 
that actual use of such a building is possible. 
Wouldn't it be an honor, 1918, to be the first class 
to graduate from the New Student Alumnae Build- 
ing: Wouldn't you enjoy commencement more in 
a big, new, well-ventilated auditorium, with slanted 
floors and good acoustics than in a warm, oxer- 
crowded and level-floored chapel? Wouldn't the 
prospects of the centering of Wellesley's social life 
and Barn dramatics in a building well-suited for 
a< ling and hearing enchant you to go to great ex- 
tremes to raise the fund? 1919 has all these pleas- 
ant prospects in view with one year more to enjoy 
them in — and so from the last two classes, everyone 
expects the most support. But whatever views you 
have about the choice of site or of the "element" 
mosl necessary or whatever prospects you have of 
personal.) enjoying the building, put aside all dif- 
ferences and put your shoulder to the wheel. We 
are all well-trained by this time, in self-abneg.it ion, 
and in laying by the stray penny let us see how 
many stray pennies we ran lead in the right direc- 
tion, and I'm 1 1 ic, liccome useful members of a large 
community horde.

■ it was because theii triving for educa 



tion made them tired and nervous. But few of us 
work ourselves to death! And then, besides, when 
we are home we act like perfectly normal beings, 
and find ourselves able to speak civilly and with 
interest to every one. How surprised our families 
would be could they see us in some of our moods! 
Perhaps the rush of academic and non-academic 
work is so great, that we really do have "nerves." 
But is not our lack of self-control due more often 
to the fact that here at College we forget to use 
our common sense? We forget how often we have 
laughed — and with some disgust — at a novelist's 
hero who thinks himself blessed with an "artistic 
temperament." There is something wrong with 
our point of view here at College, or we would not 
parade our "moods," do our duties when we feel 
like it, and only then, and long to have a reputation 
for being temperamental. Why can we not be as 
normal at College as at home? There we would 
resent being considered anything but healthy, sane, 
American women (with perhaps, more than the 
usual modicum of brains) ! Let's use our common 
sense, and develop our self-control. 



FREE PRESS. 



Come and Help. 
Every Monday afternoon Peter Bent Brigham 
Hospital of Boston sends one of its busy nurses out 
to Wellesley to help us make surgical dressings for 
the hospitals abroad. She is here from four until 
six. The first time she came, it was a novelty, 
people were curious, a good many came. The next 
time there were six, the last time five. It must 
have seemed very strange to her that only one- 
third of one per cent, of the girls cared enough to 
come. Of course there are call outs and committee 
meetings and rehearsals, of course we meant to go 
and forgot, and it is spring and we like to be out of 
doors, but if we can come to the Barn only a half 
an hour we can make fifteen or twenty sponges. 
There are three more Mondays. Let us show the 
nurse that we are not indifferent, even though we 
are busy. 1 9 1 7 . 

APPOINTMENT BUREAU. 



The situation in Europe has brought much dis- 
advantage upon teachers of modern language who 
rely upon the summer vacations for study abroad. 
Alumna? and others who are teachers of French will 
be glad to know of the ionises in the subject offered 
at the College this summer by Wellesley professors. 
The understanding is that special attention will be 
given to those points of greatest importance to 
teachers. M ( '. 



Mr. Phidelah Rice's reading of "Great Expecta- 
tions," held in Billings Hall, Thursday evening, May 
4, was an event eagerly looked forward to. Mr. Rice 
teaches in the Leland Powers School of Expression 
in Boston and came to us highly recommended by 
Leland Powers himself, who read "The Devil's 
Disciple" here sometime ago. Our highest expecta- 
tions of Mr. Rice were fulfilled. 

In view of the fact that such a reading as this is 
necessarily short, much of the story must be omitted, 
and some characters suffer in consequence. Pip, 
especially, was weakened by the omission. Mr. 
Rice portrayed excellently, the stages of Pip's de- 
velopment from the timid, oversensitive child who 
brings food and a file to the marshes at the com- 
mand of an escaped convict, to the polite, proud, 
snobbish youth who treats his old friend Joe, with 
worried coolness in London. The return of Pip's 
honest affection for Joe and his desire to stand faith- 
fully by his benefactor were intimated by Mr. Rice, 
but one misses the absolute devotion to Provis' 
safety given by Dickens. In Mr. Rice's hands, Pip 
is a passive individual around whom the action 
centers and without whose help it progresses. 

Mr. Rice played splendidly some of the minor 
characters, — stern Mr. Jaggers, who must be an- 
swered precisely, hopeful Herbert Pocket, who is 
always " looking about him," conceited Mr. Pumble- 
chook, who unhesitatingly appropriates the credit 
for everyone's else good fortune, and the perpetual 
scold, Mrs. Joe Gargery, who has "brought Pip up 
by hand." But Joe was pictured more sympathet- 
ically than any of the rest, and his patience, long- 
suffering and unselfishness were realistic and ap- 
pealing. 

M. V. B., 1918. 



SHAKESPEARE RECITAL. 

On Tuesday, May 16, 1916, at 4.30, P.M., in 
Billings Hall, Miss Wheeler and Mr. Macdougall 
will give a recital of music of Shakespeare's time. 
There will be songs referred to in Shakespeare's 
plays, with tunes of the period and Mr. Macdougall 
will play on the clavichord some of the popular 
airs of that time. All members of the College and 
their friends are invited. 



NOTE. 



The constitution of the Student Government 
Association provides that legislation passed by the 
association does not go into effect until approved 
by the Joint Council. The Sunday rules passed 
at the last meeting are, therefore, not yet in opera- 
tion.

Oli, our Wellesley conversation 
Is a source of information 
That completes our education 
In such ways, as amaze. 

"Thrilled to death, do let me see your ring"- 

" You got it in the vill, you say.''" — 

"The surest sign of spring!" 

"Not paid yet?" — "My dear, that girl's a whizz"- 

"I've not a thing to wear to-day "- 

"Ten papers and a quiz!" 

Oh, our Wellesley conversation 
Is a source of information 
That completes our education 
As you see, easily. 

"Going to Prom?" — "Please start a bath for me"- 

" I've got to get my rain-coat first" — 

"She's gone to Sally's tea." 

"Sh, sh, sh," — "It's cheap at half the price" — ■ 

"Just take him down on Tupelo" — 

"How can I break the ice?" 

Oh, our Wellesley conversation 
Is a source of information 
That completes our education 
Very well, you can tell. 

"Gave her F?" — "How marv! She made the 

crew" — 
"Please save a place at lunch for me"- 
"We ate your laundry, Sue!" 
"Where on earth can my umbrella be?" 
"She caught the one o'clock to town" — 
"Oh, such frivolity!"

That will do, now we're through.

Wellesley Hells. 

If you've ever lived in Wellesley and know its cus- 
toms well, 

There's a part of it you can't forget, the busy, buz- 
zing bell. 

Oh! from morn 'till night it clings to you, through- 
out a college day, 

Always pressing you to hurry, hurry faster on your 
way. 

Of all the bells the liveliest, most hurried bell of 

any, 
Is the belle that goes to Boston, Mass., to squander 

every penny. 
There are bells all day, and then you think you're 

safe 'til morning light. 
But you're startled from your slumbers sweet, by 

the fire-bell in the night. 

You'll surely find at Wellesley, bells of every tone, 
Bells that you rejoice to hear, and bells that make 

you groan. 
Tho' new Freshmen each September come, and 

Seniors leave each June, 
The busy, buzzing Well sley bells ring out their 

same old tune. 

Chorus. 

Noisy bells, ting-a-ling, 
Quiet bells, still they ring, 

Oh! the ever-present, everlasting, endless Welles- 
ley bells.

THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 



MORNING SERMON. 



Wellesley has been particularly fortunate this 
spring in having her religious services conducted by 
such speakers as Dr. Hugh Black, Dr. G. A. John- 
ston Ross, representatives of the leading theolog- 
ical schools of the East, and men who are distinctly- 
able, therefore, to cope with the religious problems 
of the twentieth century student. Another man of 
similar capabilities, President W. D. McKenzie 
of Hartford Theological Seminary, addressed the 
College on May 7. 

President McKenzie's message was that scien- 
tists, seeing in evolution the manifestation of rea- 
sonable construction and purposeful and progres- 
sive movement, are confirming the belief of the 
greatest Christian minds of history that our world 
is developing in accord with a clearly defined pro- 
gram. Though this program is vast beyond our 
comprehension, we realize that through it God has 
made man intelligent and free and must, therefore, 
use that intelligence and freedom in the next steps 
of progress. Evidently while evil exists and man 
enjoys the privilege of choice, God's program must 
be flexible in choice, but we may feel confident that 
it is nevertheless fixed in far-off event. Our duty 
is to discover our individual place on the program 
and, having found it, to submit ourselves to Him as 
a part of His material for development. 



VESPERS. 



At vespers, Sunday evening, May 7, the College 
was addressed by Miss Clarissa Spencer. Miss 
Spencer's subject was the Conference at Panama. 
She spoke of the great need for Christian work 
among women in South and Latin America. The 
special phase of Christian work which Miss Spencer 
stressed was the Young Woman's Christian As- 
sociation. 



CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION MEETINGS. 

Campus. 

Miss Streibert led the question meeting at Bil- 
lings Hall, Wednesday evening, May 3. Questions 
were asked concerning prayer, church membership, 
the necessity of religion, the belief in a personal 
God, and many other things that puzzle us. Miss 
Streibert's answers were in every case thoughtful 
and very helpful and the meeting was in every way 
a most profitable one. 

Village. 

At the village meeting on May 3, Miriam Vedder 
spoke on the subject "Heirs of God." As "heirs of 
God and joint heirs with Christ," our inheritance 
consists of two sorts of things: the first one is 
strength and vision and love, the second, a share of 
that task whose end is to make eternally real things

that are beautiful and right. Not accepting the 
first kind is, for us, missing out on all there really is 
in living; not accepting, with all it means, the task, 
is, for us, missing out of what might be the unify- 
ing purpose of living. However, acceptance of heir- 
ship involves the condition " If we suffer with Him." 
Only the people who aren't afraid of that price 
when it is demanded ever know fully the riches of 
the inheritance. But it gives what is worth the cost: 
the joy of having things that grow always more 
beautiful, the joy of the ability to share them, the 
joy of a faith in people, and the joy of the peace 
that comes from setting your face in the right di- 
rection, and going ahead, not afraid.

IN MEMORIAM. 



Fanny Thompson Pendleton. 
Died in Westerly, R. I., April 2, 1916. Wellesley 
15. A, 1891. Cornell, M.A., '93. 

The members of the class of '91 who were in- 
timately associated with Fanny Pendleton will all 
bear witness to the high standard of her scholarship 
and the many fine attributes of her character. Quiet 
and unassuming in manner, she gained for herself 
many warm friends, and these friendships have re- 
mained unbroken in the passing of the years. 

Faithful in her home life in all the relations of 
an only daughter, she yet found time to identify 
herself with the varied interests of her native town, 
and lived a most busy and useful life. 

We may truly say that Wellesley has lost a loyal 
daughter and the class of '91 a faithful sister. 
Signed for the Class of 91, 

Emily L. Eldridge, 
Bertha Palmer Lane.

WELLESLEY WHO'S WHO. 



A. Estelle Glancy, 1905. 

Miss A. Estelle Glancy, '05, now on the staff of the 
National Observatory of the Argentine Republic 
in South America, is one of the small group of 
Wellesley astronomers. 

She decided in her undergraduate days to fit 
herself to become a computer. To this end she took 
her major in mathematics, mathematical physics 
and astronomy. 

The position she accepted after graduation was 
that of "Watson Assistant" at the Students' Ob- 
servatory, Berkeley, California. The distinguished 
astronomer, Professor Watson of Ann Arbor, 
Michigan, discovered, one after the other, a group 
of asteroids at a time when few of these little 
planets, whose orbits lie between Mars and Jupiter, 
were known. Later hundreds have been discovered, 
— in Professor Watson's day the "Asteroid Hunters" 
discovered scores — thus making it extremely difficult 
to keep track of them. This astronomer determined 
that his planets should not become lost in the depths 
of space, and so he left in his will a sum to endow his 
asteroids, that is, to pay computers to keep up the 
calculations of their places in their orbits, allowing 
for all the perturbations caused by their neighbors, 
especially their giant neighbor, Jupiter. This 
fund was placed in charge of the University of 
California, and Miss Glancy became Watson com- 
puter. She wisely took the opportunity to con- 
tinue her studies; 1908 to 1910 she spent on Mt. 
Hamilton at Lick Observatory, and in 1913 she 
took her doctor's degree, her thesis being "On V. 
Zeipel's Theory of the Perturbations of Minor 
Planets of the Hecuba Group." 

During this time eight bulletins of the Lick Ob- 
servatory contain her work on the orbits of comets, 
and several others give the ephemeris of minor 
planets. 

The Cordoba Observatory of the Argentine 
Republic has always been under American leader- 
ship, doing large pieces of work on the stars of the 
southern sky. Miss Glancy accepted a position 
offered her there on the staff of Director Perrine. 
Her major work is connected with determining 
the exact position of the equinox. S. F. W. 



FRENCH ORPHANS. 



Miss Hart sends to College News some ex- 
tracts from a letter received from Mrs. Caroline 
Rogers Hill. Mrs. Hill's permanent address is: 
Comptoir National d'Escompte de Paris, 2 Place de 
l'Opera, Paris, France. 

" I am wondering if the Wellesley girls would care 
to work for us in their own homes during the sum- 
mer. If the two new lists, which I am enclosing to 
you — list of clothing of which we are always in need 
and list of articles — could be published in College 
News it might bring some results. 

"I am mailing to you a pattern of a sack for 
clothing for little boys and little girls. If the Welles- 
ley girls could send me five hundred of each I would 
be very happy. The material to be chosen should 
be either a stout brown linen or denim and the sew- 
ing should be strong. We have great need of these 
sacks and cannot afford to buy the material here. 
Divided up among twelve hundred girls the ex- 
pense would not be very large. We should be so 
grateful for this contribution. 



"As time goes on I am more and more convinced 
of the usefulness of the work being done by our 
committee and of its constructive value for the fu- 
ture. We are having new cases constantly, some of 
them most interesting. A little boy of eight years 
old was sent to our care last week, who had lost a 
leg as the result of an injury by a bomb, received 
when playing before his home 'somewhere in France.' 
Two other cases are those of sisters, who were set 
down from the firing line, who lay for days in a 
lethargy, unable to eat or to speak or even to move. 
We feel they were very near the edge, but both have 
responded and are now up and about, though still 
emaciated, fragile little pieces of humanity. One 
gets entirely disillusioned as to how lack of food, 
fear, exposure to cold and an irregular life affects a 
child. It is much more subtle, I can assure you, 
than what one imagines from the pictures one sees 
in the war posters, and much more difficult to de- 
scribe than you would think. I can only say that it 
seemed like walking beside a little ghost yesterday 
when I took one of these little girls, holding her on 
my arm, into the garden at La Jonchere, the sana- 
torium of our committee under the protection of 
Mrs. Bliss. We have two cases of children who are 
losing their eyesight as a result of the life of priva- 
tion. We are hoping that they will respond to the 
treatment that is being given them, but are not 
sure. 

"Our needs are going to be very urgent for the 
coming year, and we are beginning already to think 
of the winter and are writing to America to urge our 
friends to continue their interest, to stir up new inter- 
est in the work and to encourage generosity towards 

us Westover School is paying for the 

support of one colony. Milton Academy for Boys, 
through the efforts of Mr. Hunt, have adopted ten 
of the children under my protection, sending me 
$72 a year for each child. We accept no govern- 
ment allocation for the children, as does the society 
represented by the ladies of whom you spoke and 
therefore we must ask each marraine for six dollars 
a month. 

"With kindest regards to all my Wellesley friends, 
Caroline Rogers Hill, 1900."

TECH SHOW. 



The Tech Show of the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology has arranged for a performance of 
this year's musical comedy "M 34," to be given in 
Wellesley, the afternoon of Saturday, May 13. 
This performance, which is to be followed by danc- 
ing, will be given at the Town Hall at 2 P.M. 

"M 34" represents a hypothetical course at 
Tech, and deals largely with college life. Bob 
Baxter, the hero, while attending an illustrated 
lecture on "Gold, Its Occurrence and Uses," falls 
asleep; and the audience is carried with him in his 
dream. The scenes shift quickly from the center 
of the earth to Greece, the (Jarden of Love, Ari- 
zona, the Magnetic Pole, and the New Technology 
on the Charles. 

Mr. J. F. Staub, '16, who has already achieved 
considerable lame in dramatics, takes the part of 
Miss Angelle, the fair co-ed; and J. P. (iardner, 
'17, is again premier danseuse. All nine scenes of 
the play were designed and partly executed by 
students, and represent the most advanced ideas 
in modern stage craft. The costumes were made to 
harmonize with the stage settings, and to obtain 
the best possible color schemes it was found neces- 
sary to have the materials specially dyed. 

All the music and lyrics are original, and all 
female parts in the production are taken by Tech 
men. The dancing is a feature of the show, and the 
ballet is said to lie the best ever developed at Tech. 



"M 34" has already been produced in Providence. 
Northampton, Boston and Maiden, and has every- 
where been successful. The play was particularly 
well received at Northampton, where the audience 
was composed largely of Smith students. 

The company of the show consists of over a 
hundred men, many of them taking the part of 
girls in the play. 

Because of the small size of the stage parts of the 
show will have to be omitted.
